Prince Alfred Park
Large, landscaped park featuring a year-round, outdoor heated pool with a cafe, plus tennis courts.
Beautiful park in the middle of Sydney. Swimming pool, tennis courts, basketball courts, BBQ area, playground and lots of dogs!
Kids love the park. Lots of green grass. Otherwise head to Centennial Park (but a bit longer walk)
Park, BBQs, tennis courts, workout pods, big open grassy areas, dogs, kids all having a great time together. And the the amazing public pool in the middle. Very lucky to have this facility so close by.
“Local restaurant with delicious food - European influenced menu. There's also a hidden 70s themed bar in the back called GDR. Must visit! ”
“This artisan gelato shop scoops up traditional as well as outside-the-box seasonal flavours of gelato and sorbet that are just sweet enough without being cloying. The shop uses a creamy Jersey milk base and locally sourced produce. Portions are liberal and reasonably priced. A delightful dessert stop for everyone.”
“The University of Sydney and the inner west frame Victoria Park, a picturesque 9 hectare public park. Grass fields sprawl across the park and frame Lake Northam, a quiet space where you can find a secluded and peaceful spot under the shade of a nearby tree. Take a step back into the 19th century and stroll through the many historic structures that provide a throwback to the park’s opening, and a feel for Sydney at an earlier time. These include the entrance gates, Gardener’s Lodge (which is now home to a café), an ornamental wooden bridge and Canadian totem pole with the university peeking above the horizon. A major new playground has been built with equipment for kids of all ages. Victoria Park Pool is also located within the park. Several community events take place in the park during the year, including Yabun Festival, which is an annual celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures held on 26 January, and Fair Day, a family and dog-friendly fundraiser for the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras. Sections of the park are off-leash at specified times. The park is well serviced by Parramatta Road and City Road bus services. Car parking is available, with accessible parking bays located near the Victoria Park Pool entrance.”
“The Noble Hops pours a regularly rotating array of on-tap craft beers from around the world. The bottled beer selection rotates as well, shifting with the seasons. It’s a great spot to enjoy some specialty suds in a casual and relaxed atmosphere. There’s spicy popcorn, too, if you’re peckish.”
